months ago. he said he wanted to make sure the devastating cuts to defense would never occur. and he warned that nearly 44,000 jobs were at stake. now he's singing a different tune. >> it's almost like a hostage situation here. they're saying you've got to do it our way or we'll torpedo the economy and you, the president and your party, will be blamed for that. that is something like what had happened over the last couple years. the problem now is that the president just won the election. there's a long time for the economy to recover even if they succeed in injekting more contraction their effects spoo the economy by taking yet more government spending out of it. it's a very dangerous theory and it's not a long term growth prospect for the republican party to say we'll gain in popularity. >> and melissa, quickly, this obsession with spending cuts, everything that answers cut. what about having a good afternoon? >> cut. >> what about where we're going this evening? cut. look at the cut of session of republicans. >> we have worked all year to reduce our budget deficit and to cut spend

makes you a bads person. we want critical defense attorneys to represent some of the worst people in the world. when is security and exchanges commission was established in the '30sroosevelt, he appointed a man deeply involved, joseph p. kennedy. he said hey, look, guys, i know all of the tricks because i've play ds them. now they're over. can i say on the dodd-frank bill, one important point. when we passed that bill in june, 2010, the financial community and the republicans said this is going to be the end of the markets. this is going to destroy the financial community. in the 2 1/2 years since that bill became law, the dow jones industrial average has gone up 40%. we have just had one of the best periods in american history in the stock market. and i'm not saying that the passage of the bill caused it, but the notion by trying to get good regulation, let me say this. if that's undermining, there's a lot of people that would like to be undermined. >> well, the chairman conceived it and the president is fighting to protect it. former congressman bar knee frank, thanks for your time ton

that they see they're on the defensive, defensive, especially after sandyhook and how much we've overreached in the past and the public now is making a pushback. >> but it also, michelle, shows you that people have to, even if they were inclined to listen to them, have to wonder when you take people, danny devito, jack nicholson, their enemies. and then at what level do you say wait a minute, does anybody that even slightly disagree with you become a threat to the second amendment? maybe this is not about the second amendment. when you look at the nra list, the american medical association, national association of police organizations. league of women voters, ywca, united methodist church, these are not enemies of the second amendment. we all don't have to agree with you to not be an enemy. >> i think clarence is exactly right in terms of it's very important for them to stoke this feeling of victim hood and besiegement and paranoia among the membership. and, you know, maybe we can through the smurfs on the list and argue what kind of threat brittany spears poses to america. this

like to do is actually cancel the defense part of the sequestration and shift those cuts on to the non-defense side. that must be avoided. look, first of all in my view all these cuts ought to be avoided the way the president was talking about today. but what i just described absolutely must be avoided because it puts all the pressure on the non-discretionary side which is where you have head start and the womans infant and childrens food program, housing subsidies. all the things we've been talking about throughout the segment here. >> it's also important to note what they're not talking about is we're not saying that we don't need reform or savings in our entitlement programs. we do. president obama has proposed $360 billion in savings in addition to the more than $700 billion in savings that added eight years of solvency to the affordable care act. we have those proposals on the table. we just don't want to do it the way the republicans do which is cut benefits to seniors particularly middle class seniors who can ill afford to endure those kinds of cuts and who don't have to. >>
